JON LOVITZ

More and more Saturday Night Live veterans seem to be making the leap to stand-up lately. Longtime cast member Tim Meadows, who was supposed to be at Goodnights last month but canceled, has been touring comedy clubs, as has head-bopping Roxbury Guy Chris Kattan, who'll be at Goodnights March 15. Now add Jon Lovitz to the mix. The late-eighties Not Ready for Prime Time Player has been honing his skills as a stand-up for the last decade. Like Meadows and Kattan, Lovitz started out in improv, ad-libbing with Kattan in Los Angeles troupe The Groundlings. But during his college days at UC Irvine, he used to do Woody Allen and Lenny Bruce bits in his dorm, and while at SNL, he was encouraged to do stand-up. Dude was just too nervous. Now, with enough years under his belt working clubs in L.A., he's a full-fledged road comic. Still, don't be surprised if he pulls out a bit of his old SNL shtick. Yeah, that's the ticket. —Craig D.
